Tachyon Inversion Beams is a cone shield steal ability available when in Regenerative Mode on a Veteran Heavy Destroyer equipped with its [Console - Universal - Dynamic Tactical System] or [Console - Universal - Enhanced Dynamic Tactical System].

Basic Information[edit | edit source]

  • Profession: Any
  • Locale: Space
  • Game Description: Tachyon Inversion Beams fires multiple Anti-Tachyon Beams to multiple targets in front of your ship. Like a standard Tachyon Beam, these beams will drain the targets[sic] shields. Unlike a standard Tachyon Beam, Tachyon Inversion Beams will transfer some of that drained shield energy directly to your own shields - effectively repairing your own shield damage. Each target drained increases your own shield repair.

    Tachyon Inversion Beams is not available when Tactical Mode is active.
